I have seen that: Done previously when all child beds at that facility and throughout the state were completely filled. In this situation the child had a one on one watch at all times and was not involved in adult therapy programs on the ward.

How can I find an adult mental health advocate? An adult relative has been diagnosed bipolar. Usually this is treated sufficiently with medication. But recently, she has also been experiencing depression and anxiety, afraid of irrational things like the
Wait..: Your first question seems unrelated to the rest; you are describing a poorly compensated case of bipolar disorder. This needs to be addressed asap; consultation with a psychiatrist in order to stabilize this patient is a must. If this is done in an outpatient setting, typically a case manager from a state agency can be ensured through the discharge planners of the unit. ...Read more
Normal?: On ultrasonography, you'll find figures of 18 ml as the low number for young men, but in two series of older men, the actual mean was 9-10 ml. Truth be told, ryan, why ask? You need enough functioning testicular tissue to maintain your adult male stuff and if you want, to become a father.

Any sensible "comparison" of treatment plans would have to be done on a case-by-case basis. ...Read more
Novoret for health adult. If they are safe why medical prescription needed for buying...can I take it. ..are there any side effects in long term?
Clarification...: If you are asking whether there are health benefits for an adult who drinks breast milk, I would say the risks outweigh the possible benefits. Certain infections (such the HIV virus and others) can be transmitted via breast milk. I would stick to my other milk choices (cow, goat, soy, rice, etc.). ...Read more
Can you suggest some good reading references for adult behavior modification (physical health issues) in a non-clinical setting?
Health issues: Mind body approaches to health issues include a trip to the doc to rule out or diagnose medical conditions if that has not been done yet. Then consider "Feeling Good" by David Burns for cognitive therapy to help mood disorders. "The Divided Mind" by John Sarno is good for pain. A clinical psychologist who specializes in health psychology or behavioral medicine can facilitate this process. Peace ...Read more

Never: Heard about risks. Another question -why?Get a more detailed answer ›
Yes: We live in a toxic world.

Is milk good for adults and children? And how much should we consume dairy products? Is milk in any way bad for your health?
Milk: Milk is a good source of protein and calcium. Low fat or 2% helps to address the issue of fat with milk.

Not to worry: Pupillary distance measurements are not very accurate, so it is unlikely that you have a problem. In the rare instance where you might have a cyst in the sinus or a tumor behind the eye, you would see an eye bulging or would have double vision. ...Read more
